Hope you are all having a fabulous week so far! Almost the long weekend…
For the next two weeks we will be repeating the last 7 days. This way you can buy all of your ingredients ahead of time and get used to this way of eating. After two weeks I will post new recipes and ideas.
I will however be posting some snacking ideas so you can switch up the current plan slightly for a little bit of variation.
Thank you to everyone who has diligently gone out each day to buy the new list of ingredients. I know this is time consuming but it will be easier over the next two weeks as you know what’s coming.
I spoke to a PT client yesterday who says she hasn’t cheated at all and has followed the plan 100 percent. Day 6 she weighed in the morning and only 5 days in and she was 1kg down from day one of the challenge. Amazing! She also says she is feeling great and not feeling deprived. How are YOU feeling? Is there something specific you are craving? Maybe I can find a healthier version. Let me know!
We are now selling on the go snacks at the health bar.
You may replace a snack with a pizza cup (but then your other snack for the day changes to a green apple)
You can replace a meal with either a bagel or Mince pie and add a basic fresh salad with it (lettuce, tomato, cucumber) or instead of the salad a green apple.
All the on the go snacks are extremely low carb (Less than 3 carbs)
The bagel and pie are just over 250 cal in total each
And the pizza cup is even less at just over 150 cal (this is why you can replace it with a snack)
If you would like to place an order please let me know before 3pm and it will be freshly baked for tomorrow.
I will be posting some cool info each day so please stay tuned 🙂 I have some fun, yummy recipes to try out over the weekend to make sure there’s no falling off of the bus.
Later today I’ll posting again…. with some interesting info
Please see below for the meals for day 8
Protein smoothie / Health bar smoothie
(If you don’t have the time to make your own, pop into our Health Bar and grab a smoothie on the go. I enjoy the skinny peanut butter one on days I am running late. We are open from 6am – 11am every day 25a Schmidtsdrift Road)
1 serving of protein shake
(I’m currently using the Vegan Wild Protein Vanilla shake because it’s gluten free, dairy free and soy free. (This means no bloating or upset tummy) but any protein shake of preference will do.
1 slice pineapple
1 tablespoon oats
12 small blocks of ice
1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk
1 sachet stevia / 1 tsp honey (I prefer stevia but the honey is just as good)
1 small handful of raspberries
Blend it all together
(Add a little water as needed if it’s too thick to blend)
Its that easy! Enjoy 🙂
(Total 280 cal)
Almond Butter sachet (32g)
1 medium carrot (optional)
(I eat this straight out of the packet, but some prefer to dip a carrot into it which I’ve heard to be a yummy combination)
( Total 113cal )
This is a winner. It’s a big portion which is guaranteed to leave you feeling full. (If you aren’t a fan of fish replace the tuna with 100grams of grilled chicken.
1 x baby gem lettuce head
(These are great and can be found at Woolies. The leaves are so small and are the perfect size for the boats, but any lettuce will do)
1 tin tuna (in water)
1 tbs mayonnaise
1 medium Tomato
1/4 cup yellow peppers
Salt and Pepper as needed
( Total 250cal)
(This snack can be eaten either before meal 3 or after, depending when you need it the most)
1 x small packet of salted cashew nuts 30grams
1 x cappuccino with unsweetened almond milk, no sugar
(Total 198 cal)
Grilled chicken and veg dish
120 grams chicken breast grilled in 1/2 tsp of coconut oil
1/4 butternut (200grams)
1/2 red onion
1 cup cauliflower
1/2 cup baby marrow
4 Tbs Tomato and herb tin mix
(I steam all the vegetables in my steamer in the microwave and once soft, add the veggies and cut up chicken into an oven safe dish. Add some salt and pepper and allow to grill for 20 mins)
1 x cappuccino with unsweetened almond milk. no sugar
*Try and drink a minimum of 1.5l of water throughout the day. This helps with cravings and will keep you hydrated, which means glowing skin 🙂
